Le Mans 24 Heures
It’s the most iconic endurance race in the world. Le Mans 24 Heures is a test of skill, endurance, teamwork and technology for the teams and drivers involved, and a true spectacle to behold for the lucky fans attending the race.
Often referred to as the “Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency” teams have to balance speed, with the ability to run the car for 24 hours. It’s a true test of all the elements that make motor racing one of the most exhilarating sports on the planet.
Held just outside the small French town of Le Mans, the race has been going since its inception in 1923, with the initial plan for it to be a 3 year race - the winner being the car that could go the furthest distance in 24 hours in three consecutive years. This was abandoned in 1928 however. The early races were dominated by British, French and Italian drivers, teams and cars. Bentley, Alfa Romeo and Bugatti were all out in front. The latter two invested in aerodynamic bodywork in the 1930s to really dominate.
The race has evolved much over the years, with a 10 year break due to World War II, to reach the current format we know today with specific car types racing in their own class, but also an overall race of who can go the furthest in 24 hours. Recent events have been dominated by Audi and Toyota with their new hybrid cars in the LMP1 class. Whatever the cars and whichever the class it’s always an event full of thrills and spills.
